Ouch, thats gotta hurt.

Most computer parts you can usually expect around 70% of its original value if its not to old. In your case maybe around 80% given that its a high end item with 5 mins use.

IME USB enclosures are even more iffy than bios, since the actual chip in it does all the heavy lifting instead of the AHCI bios and then the driver as is the case with windows.

Just wondering, if you put it in a newer PC can you partition it and boot off the partition then Windows will see the second partition? Or can you boot off another drive and then Windows finds the 3TB drive?

You're dreaming with that start price IMO.

If its the ST33000651AS the start price of $300 is fair, potentially enabling someone to get it $67 cheaper than new (Pricespy), which it practically is. I would buy it at $300 if I needed it. Good luck mate.

No receipt, seller cant be bothered with shipping options and its only 20% under new retail. That to me is dreaming territory.

Its a drive with unknown history and ownership status right now, with no idea how much extra the seller will want to get it to you. under 24hr to go and no bids, that to me shows an unreasonable start price.
